March 7, 2009


We had a great turnout on Saturday the 7th of March, as thirty four shooters enjoyed perfect weather and good shooting conditions.  The prone shooters outnumbered the f-classers with twenty compared to fourteen for f-class.  That included ten shooters entered in the Marksman class, which is a healthy sign for the future.  We hope the trend continues as new shooters are the life blood of the shooting sports.


On the prone side, Bob Jenkins was Match Winner with a terrific score of 594-34x.  Fine shooting indeed Bob.  Buck Kliebert was top gun in the combined Master/Expert class with his score of 585-23x.  With ten entries in the Marksman class we awarded down to 3rd place, that being Bob Bose with his score of 551-7x.  In second place was Norman Bennett (who was recently reclassified) with 554-14x.  It was good to see Norman ‘on the podium’ again.  Good shooting.  Taking first place honors in Marksman was Louisiana’s hot shooting Junior, Mike Liuzza with 574-19x.


On the F-Class side of the range, your humble scribe finally found an acorn and won the match with a score of 591-25x.  It is amazing what a good rifle can do for a mediocre shooter.  Whitney Simoneaux took first place in the Open class with 585-25x.  The F-TR class had eight entries and scoring was very close amongst the top three.  Second place was awarded to Lonnie Dutreix with a score of 572-15x.  The F-TR winner was Jeremy Lomax with 573-10x.  Note that only a single point and an X separated the top three shooters.  Ms. Ashlyn Kliebert was third by the single ‘x’.  We are indeed honored to have two wonderful young ladies attend our matches.  Ashlyn once again showed she is a lovely force to be reckoned with when shooting her .223.  I also want to send a special thanks to Miss. Maddie Jenkins who volunteered to score during the match.  Thanks for attending Ladies, and guys you too.  We hope you enjoy our little match.


Our next match will be Saturday April 4th.  The following month, May we will hold our 2-day Spring Regional on the 2nd & 3rd.  Mark your calendars.  Also, the range will host the Bayou State Regional High Power across the course match April 17-19.  We hope you can attend both, and spread the word.  See our web site for details
